Myspace Comic Books Closes Down
Myspace just announced that it will be cutting its staff by 30%, calling its current workforce “bloated” and laying off over 400 employees. But what does this mean for comic book fans, you ask selfishly? Well, according to our sources, it means that Myspace Comic Books, a site on the social network that hosted comic book previews from Marvel, DC, Image, Boom!, and most notably Myspace Dark Horse Presents, will soon be no more.
There are plenty of comic book sites hosting previews of superhero comics, so don’t cry too hard, but I did enjoy the online-only Dark Horse comics, so I hope they find themselves a new home. In brighter news, ComicsAlliance will be posting an exclusive preview originally intended for Myspace — along with a creator guest blog — this Thursday, so check back then!
